Fall is upon us, ya’ll. It’s time to bust out those pumpkin spice candles and start raking leaves.
I’m not one of those ‘yay it’s fall I can finally wear boots’ kind of girls. I don’t mind it, I suppose, but I certainly don’t welcome it. If it’s fall, that means winter is coming. And winter and I are not friends.
If you’re planning on creating a fall bucket list but are honest with your life like I am, maybe just try this.
A Realistic Fall Bucket List
1.) Buy a pumpkin to carve with your kids. Do all the work for them.
2.) Get a carmel apple at the pumpkin patch shop, watch a bee land in it immediately, throw it directly in the trash.
3.) Try to make your own delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte at home. Dump it out because the recipe was a big fat liar and go to Starbucks instead.
4.) Paint your nails a nice fall shade of ‘Cocoa’ that actually makes it look like you stuck your fingers in poop.
5.) Get lost in a corn maze. Really lost. Panic.
6.) Watch a spooky movie with your kids. Let them subsequently sleep in your bed for the next two weeks. Remind them witches aren’t real.
7.) Bake pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin roll and pumpkin pie. Cry when you realize you’ve gained 11 pounds.
8.) Hang a decorative wreath on your front door so you’ll have to use brute force to get it to shut for the next 30 days.
9.) Pretend to smile with your family in a pile of leaves for a photo, knowing you just threatened to sell them on the black market if they didn’t cooperate.
10.) Make warm apple cider to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon. Remember cider is gross and you hate it.
See? This is much more reasonable, isn’t it? Happy Fall, ya’ll.
